In short: Superb In full: An excellent route, meandering through Hertfordshire Countryside. A couple of hills but they didn't last long. Would definitely run it again. Only complaint was that the starting point was too narrow. Date of review: May 21, 2007
In short: Well marshalled, but (like the course) with its ups and downs In full: A very well marshalled and organised race, but the start let it down - trying to fit everyone onto a very narrow strip of pavement seemed to be a recipe for disaster. I recall that the start was different last year, and much more effective.
However, once into the very attractive countryside, such worries were left behind - and replaced with new ones. Was any part of the course flat?
Thank you to all the marshalls and spectators who provided much-needed support to a very hot runner. Date of review: May 21, 2007
In short: Friendly atmosphere and helpful marshalls. The course was fairly easy and goes through some nice countryside. All in all a relaxed race for runners of all abilities. Date of review: May 20, 2007
In short: The weather was good In full: The course was nice good scenery and mostly only very few traffic however I came across some - points like the car park quite a walk to the start (ok thru a nice park) and the 1k on a small footpath with grass right and left (a bit like a cross county race) but anyway it was enjoyable race in a nice scenry. Good points also the wide spectrum of different runners! Date of review: May 20, 2007
In short: very well organised and slightly undulating is a fiar description In full: no real hills to speak of but a few inclines along the way. Lots of marshalls - nearly every junction has a marshall - almost impossible to get lost. run on quiet roads (not closed). nice key fob momento this year water at 5Km and at finish Date of review: May 20, 2007
In short: A nice way to spend a sunday in May In full: A good course, very scenic, underlating yes, but still enjoyable. Marshalls were very encouraging. It's good to have another local race, the start was a bit problematic, just having to run round the curve to start but aside from that it was a very good thought out course.
I will be back next year. Date of review: May 19, 2006
